    Any more? :puppyeyes:
    Only two were released, I'm afraid. There may be more this year though.

    Never resist the urge to get DWM. :naughty:
    It's expensive. Well it's not really expensive. I'll probably buy it tomorrow.

    (Original post by TheCrackInTime)
    They are, yes. They're called "Meanwhile in the TARDIS" and were produced specifically for the DVD/Blu ray box sets.
    That's another reason to get the DVD box set.

    It's cheaper if you subscribe though. I subscribe, so I only pay £2.69 per issue, rather than the £4.50 cover price.

    I didn't know that. I'll wait until the next academic year to subscribe.

    What do you think of this article http://www.guardian.co.uk/tv-and-rad...-who-too-scary?
    Personally, it's a non-issue. Kids love to be afraid, I get more scared than most 7 year olds anyway, I don't think it's losing the childhood audience and besides it's been just as (if not more) scary before.
    (btw Ape, before I post a thread in about which you will no doubt be the one to answer, how do I link with a word rather than posting the url?)

    Cambo is a wizard. Though it's much easier to write what you want, highlight it and click in which you can copy and paste the URL.

    It is a non-issue, I agree. I agree with the second father, Michael Hann. It's also important for kids to be taught the difference between reality and TV/entertainment, and that what is portrayed on TV on shows like Doctor Who is entirely fictional even though there will be some moral message and emotion derived from the show.



    :unsure:
    Tbh whilst I want more of Amy Pond being a bit of a slag, I can kind of see the point if the show is still aiming at a young family audience. Amy is very sexually strong and is not really being that great at showing she is happy in her relationship. She flirts in a sexually aggressive manner with the Doctor whereas River is a lot more playful.

    Maybe they've been watching the porn version of Who? (comprised of all those Tumblr gifs of Matt Smith in the Lodger...you know the bit I mean). Yeah, I agree.
    Ah kay - good to know.

    That's because River is the epitome of all that is awesome while despite the fact Amy has her moments of coolness she tends to be very annoying!

    If you keep an eye out, Panini (the publisher of DWM) often have special offers which allow you to subscribe cheaper than normally. When I originally took out my subscription, the normal sub price was £40/year but there was a special offer on at the time, so I got it for £35/year instead.

    I don't think it's a new issue. I haven't seen many of the old episodes but my dad has said that he remembers hiding behind the sofa from the daleks as a kid. It's part of watching Doctor Who and people (including kids) like getting scared. Just look at how successful horror films are.

    There hasn't been any sex. In fact there's not enough sex.

    Slag? Slag? *must resist the urge to go on a feminist rant* But slag? Seriously?

    She's sexually strong. Amy's obviously very confident with her sexuality for whatever reason and there's nothing wrong with that, even for a family audience. God forbid little girls should grow up thinking that it's perfectly OK for them to be confident about their sexuality. I mean can you imagine what it would be like if everyone went back to repressing their sexual desires?

    I'm trying to avoid going on a rant here. But year Amy's confident and feisty but I think it's interesting to have too female characters who are in a way similar and yet so different. Amy's strong and feisty but that's only because in series 5 she was trying to hide her vulnerability and maybe that's also she's sexually strong. River on the hand is a lot stronger than Amy, also feisty, in fact pretty ballsy but mature and playful to Amy's almost childish nature so her flirting is bound to come across different from that of Amy's

    Amy hasn't really flirted with the Doctor this series and I think in a way she's changed since Rory sorted her out. (sorry :mmm:) I mean she's obviously calmed down now that she's sure of her relationship with Rory and her 'feelings' for the Doctor. They've already settled those feelings with last week's episodes and the heart to heart with both Rory and the Doctor.

    Besides River's "I'm a screamer line" wasn't more than playful.

    Slag is more of a generic word these days used in the same way as 'that hammer is gay'. Feminist rants are a tad tiresome when you spend a lot of time in university :facepalm2: at them.

    Amy is more than sexually confident. Sexual confidence is a good thing. Knowing who you are etc is a good thing. However, this is a family show (I think they should drop that tag and aim slightly more mature but whatever) and people don't want to have to explain to their kids why a woman who is in a relationship is flirting with another man. And she is doing it even though her boyfriend has met the new man.

    Think of it in purely childish terms. The way kids get taught life. Man loves woman, woman loves man, they get married and love eachother forever.
    Then on a show aimed at that age group you have. Man loves woman, woman says she loves man, woman flirst aggressively and sexually with man 2, man 1 is now confused and parents are having to explain things they probably can't be bothered doing on a Saturday night.

    "I'm a screamer" is something that can be taken two ways so works perfectly, like the original Shrek film etc. However, Amy is a lot more 'physical' about her flirting. She was also introduced as a kissogram which is something quite hard to explain to kids, especially as, yet again, she is in a relationship.

    As I said earlier, I like that she is putting it out there as we get more o her :sexface: but you need to think of the age group this show is aimed at.
